After Kaplan, I’m going back to university in Japan to start preparing for my thesis and I’d like to get a job where I could use my new English skills.
I have improved so much in my grammar and writing. After Kaplan I will use my English in my job to communicate with more people, and, most importantly, I will use the English I have learned to go to university as I hope to become a pilot one day.
I feel more comfortable with my English than I did when I started; I will use it to find a good job.
My capability to speak fluently in English has greatly improved and I will use my new skills to achieve my dream of being accepted to an American college.
